Host Template: Network - Cisco ACI - Spine Node

Monitor your Cisco ACI Spine Nodes with metrics for health score, usage information and a detailed summary of faults.

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
ACI - Spine Node - Fan Summary A summary of the fans' operational states for a given spine node N/A N/A
ACI - Spine Node - Faults A summary of all faults for a given spine node spine_node_critical_faults=,0
spine_node_major_faults=,0
spine_node_minor_faults=0,
spine_node_warning_faults=0,
spine_node_info_faults=,
spine_node_cleared_faults=,
N/A
ACI - Spine Node - Health Score The health score for a given spine node spine_node_health_score=95:,80: N/A
ACI - Spine Node - PSU Summary A summary of all power supplies for a given spine node N/A N/A
ACI - Spine Node - CPU Usage The CPU usage for a given spine node user_avg_cpu=70,90
kernel_avg_cpu=70,90
idle_avg_cpu=30:,10:
%
ACI - Spine Node - Memory Usage The memory usage for a given spine node spine_node_memory_usage=70,90 %

Usage Instructions

Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Network - Cisco ACI - Spine Node Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.

Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this Host Template

The Service Checks in this Host Template use the following variables, and they will be added to your Opsview Monitor instance when you import the Opspack:

ACI_CREDENTIALS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your credentials.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--api-server-url Arg1 ACI API Server URL The server URL for your Cisco ACI
--username Arg2 ACI Username The username for your Cisco ACI
--password Arg3 ACI Password The password for your Cisco ACI

ACI_POD_ID

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--pod-id Value ACI Pod ID The ID of the pod

ACI_NODE_ID

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--node-id Value ACI Node ID The ID of the node

ACI_FAULT_SETTINGS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your settings. The fault severity must be one of; 'critical', 'major', 'minor', 'warning', 'info', 'cleared' (default: 'major'). The fault limit, limits the number of faults displayed (default: '10'). Leave this blank to display all faults.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--fault-severity Arg1 ACI Fault Severity The minimum severity level of faults to display
--fault-limit Arg2 ACI Fault Limit The maximum number of faults to display

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

For mode-specific help, run the plugin with the -h -m flags. This will list the required and optional Variable Arguments for that mode. The appropriate mode for each Service Check is listed here:

Service Check Name Mode
ACI - Spine Node - Fan Summary ACI.Spine.Fans
ACI - Spine Node - Faults ACI.Spine.Faults
ACI - Spine Node - Health Score ACI.Spine.Health
ACI - Spine Node - PSU Summary ACI.Spine.PSU
ACI - Spine Node - CPU Usage ACI.Spine.CPU
ACI - Spine Node - Memory Usage ACI.Spine.Memory

SSL Certificates

Additionally, if ssl verification is required, you can use the following variable to pass in your SSL certificates for use when connecting to the service provider to gather metrics:

ACI_CERTIFICATES

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your certificates.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--ca-path Arg1 CA Certificate Path Path to the CA Certificate. Optional, only required if server verification is needed
--client-cert Arg2 Client Certificate Path Path to the Client Certificate. Optional, only required if client verification is needed
--client-key Arg3 Client Key Path Path to the Client Key. Optional, only required if client verification is needed

Step 3: Apply changes and the system will now be monitored
